BEDFORD — Colson Romano’s 40-yard pass to Billy Cooper on the last play of the first quarter Thursday night was supposed to put Hurst L.D. Bell deep into Euless Trinity territory.
It would’ve given the Blue Raiders a first down and a chance to take the lead over a team they hadn’t beaten in 15 years.
Instead, a fumble at the 15-yard-line resulted in a Trinity recovery.The Trojans capitalized on that with a 73-yard touchdown drive on their way to a 55-0 win over Bell at Pennington Field.
The Trojans (5-2 overall, 4-0 District 6-5A) rushed for 483 yards on 48 rushes, including six touchdowns. Ja’Ron Wilson led Trinity with four scores on the ground.
Trinity extended its win streak over Bell to 16 games in a row.
Bell (5-2, 3-1) forced Trinity to punt on its first possession, but that would be the last time the Trojans’ offense would give the ball away as it scored on seven of its next nine possessions.
Quarterback Christian Hammack finished 5-of-7 passing with a 30-yard touchdown pass to Edrick Gonzales in the second quarter. Gonzales finished with two catches for 63 yards.
Isaac Ellsworth led the Trojans with 156 yards rushing. His 69-yard touchdown run on the second play of the third quarter put Trinity up 27-0.
